The Littlest Stamp

Thursday, December 16, 2010

PTI's new Banner Builder set is a really sweet, whimsical set that I really knew I would love using.  Little did I know that I would find great inspiration in the littlest stamp in the set.  A tiny little x stamp.  If you're not careful, you'll loose it!  As soon as I saw it, I thought of cross stitch and I have been waiting to try out my idea for about a week now.  I love the result!
It really comes together more quickly than you might think.  I love the look with a mix of colors and on the bunny.  It gives the bunny a home made vintage toy look.



On this card I just used one ink color and I love the way that looks too!  I used my PTI felt for the first time on this card.  {Thanks, Audrey!}
Thanks for coming by today!
